Hey there! I'm a member of technical staff on the OpenAI Preparedness team, currently on leave from MIT.

Previously, I researched interpretability and multimodal models at CSAIL. I also worked on biophysics at IMES, simulating polymer physics to model the 3D genome. I was a member of MIT AI Alignment and MIT Video Game Orchestra, and I served as my dormitory's vice president.
